Time to rank the Jurassic Park movies


Jurassic Park - The original and the best
Jurassic World - Fantastic reboot, great new characters in Owen and Claire
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - Almost a horror and all the more enjoyable because of that
Jurassic Park III - Good to see Allan Grant back
The Lost World: Jurassic Park - Awful. Dumb story and really amateurish.

There is only one: the original. All the rest are CRAP.

I totally agree the original was the best. They should never made any sequels.

Pretty much. I wish they hadn't turned it into a franchise. I feel like the series is going to become kind of like Jaws - you can only do so much with dinosaurs before they begin to lose their majesty and the audience doesn't want to be awed anymore, they just want to see how many people get eaten.

That's not to say I hated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - in many respects I enjoyed it, just as I, for the most part, enjoyed the earlier Jurassic World. It's just that they don't feel like Jurassic Park movies to me.

Jurassic Park - easily the very best and a genuine masterpiece

Jurassic World - a solid follow-up; nowhere near as good as the first and has some dumb subplots (weaponized dinos?) but enjoyable overall and the one with the richest story after the first one

Jurassic Park III - a fun enough ride if you go into it accepting of what it is, which is a breezy 90-minute B-movie; and as the OP says, it's the only other entry with Alan Grant; plus, even though a lot of fans hated them, I liked the Kirbys

The Lost World / Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (tie) - didn't really care for either and mostly for the same reasons; both are too dark, both visually and tonally, and neither has a story that is particularly interesting

JWFK: 7.5/10
JPIII: 7/10
TLW: 5/10

Jurassic Park 10/10 A+
One of the best movies ever made re-watchable and enjoyable 25 years latter. Great lovable characters and great dialogue and memorable lines. Iconic scenes that will stand the test of time.

Jurassic Fallen Kingdom 8/10 B+
Just saw it. Very much enjoyed it and look forward to seeing it again. First movie to introduce a little horror back in since the first in my opinion. Could fall in the years to come but very impressed with first viewing. Director JA is a boss and does this series justice.. give him an equal level writer and I think you could get a movie similar to the original.


Jurassic Park Lost World 7.5/10 B
Still a good movie with breathtaking special effects at the time. Can't believe this was made with 73 million in 97'. Still has a lot of story issues along with many other problems. Just doesn't hold up to the first. Without it's effects (which are ageing) it doesn't have the character development and memorable lines like the first does.

Jurassic World 7.5/10 B
A big dumb CGI mess... But I like it lol. It was a fun ride but none of the magic of the original.



Jurassic Park III 7/10 B-
Fine. A good ride and we all enjoy having Dr Grant back and is side kick billy is a nice addition. But, the story and the other characters are terrible and drag this movie down. Still have love for the Spino.

Can't agree with your placing of The Lost World. It's a train wreck capped off with the mystery of how the ship got to San Diego if the crew had all been eaten by raptors. Apparently there was supposed to be a scene to explain what happened but they didn't get around to filming it and just ignored the giant plot hole and released it anyway. Unforgiveably lazy filmaking.

reply

Yeah it's got major problems no doubts there. However, there are some scenes with Roland that are pretty good. And the idea of a whole crew of Ingen's employee's striping the island I found very intriguing even if Vince Vaughn had to ruin it with his animal rights propaganda. I just found the scale and execution of the film to be very impressive for it's time even if the there are huge story problems.

This may bring some appreciation at-least for the effort put into TLW.
